The City of Grand Junction has been awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment.

“I am proud of the continued efforts of City Council, City management, and accounting staff to earn this award each year. The CAFR is an important record of the City’s fiscal responsibility and financial management, and to achieve this level of distinction year after year is a great achievement,” said Jodi Welch, City of Grand Junction Finance Director.

The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.

The GFOA is a non-profit professional association with offices in Chicago, IL, and Washington, D.C. serving approximately 19,000 government finance professionals.

Each year, the City of Grand Junction prepares a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), which includes the results of the annual audit, as well as a comprehensive report of the City’s financial statements. This is the 37th continuous year that the City has received this award, which is evidence of the commitment to continued excellence in financial reporting.
